Feannag the Crow by Carroll S. Taylor
Catch the Spirit of Appalachia, Inc.
Available from the publisher
Little Feannag is not patient! He thinks he's ready to fly alone and see new things, but he may face danger if he disobeys his parents and strays too far from their oak tree.
When Feannag decides to disobey his parents and slip away from home, he drops from a tree branch to the forest floor where he discovers a garden and new friends.
If Feannag the Crow is going to be safe in the forest, he must obey his parents. He must learn to fly high and fast!
When Young Feannag disobeys his parents and ventures from the safety of home, he drops into the farmer's garden where he learns to make friends with different creatures who live there.
Feannag the Crow is a first edition featuring original pastels created by Doreyl Ammons Cain. It is the first book in a future series preparing children for the process of socialization, and its theme is "Meeting New Friends."
Carroll S. Taylor grew up on a dirt road in West Georgia. As a child, she loved wild critters, especially reptiles and amphibians. After graduating from Tift College, in Forsyth, Georgia, she taught for more than forty years, teaching students ranging from kindergarten to university level.
She enjoys feeding crows who visit her backyard every morning. The crows receive treats while she observes the crows and learns about them.
Carroll is also the author of two young adult novels, Chinaberry Summer and Chinaberry Summer: On the Other Side. Both books present themes of anti-bullying, caring for our ecosystem, generational storytelling, and so much more told through the first person perspective of eleven-year-old Sissie Stevenson.
Carroll lives in Hiawassee, Georgia, with her husband and their calico cat Peaches who rules the house.
